Creams are thick liquid solutions to apply on skin. These days they are specifically made for all different parts, as different creams are available for face, neck, body and feet as the requirement of each body part is different. Choosing a cream most importantly depends on the skin type as all skin types needs different and creams specifically made for their particular skin type as if a cream made for dry skin applied on oily skin will spoil the skin and it will break out.
Same way usage of creams depends on the age also. Not all age groups need the same creams. As skin requirement is different with different age groups. A teenage girl doesn't require a firming cream though requires a cream for protection from acne, pimples and outer environment as UV rays but a middle age lady might not require a cream just to moisturize it but she needs a cream to help her skin remain young, which could prevent her skin from early aging, from wrinkles. Here are different creams' types to explain in details what they are meant for.
firming creams are anti aging creams which are made for 40 plus women to help the skin stay firm and supple and away from wrinkles till it can as a woman's skin starts losing its elasticity from the age 30 and then women need special care for their skin because naturally their skin starts aging and the production of sebum slows down. Skin starts becoming lost, starts getting wrinkles and loses its elasticity.
Regular usage of these skin-firming creams helps skin restore its resilience and elasticity, adds the youthful glow and vitality to the skin. These days skin-firming creams are available for the use of the cream on all over the body. They are anti cellulite and claim to tone the skin to make it look young, glowing and supple without wrinkles on it. These creams are available in different forms as firming creams are available for day use, night use and body use.
Firming creams, which are made for facial, are not same as those, which are made for daily usage. They are available in forms of lotions, gels and serums. Some companies make even capsules to be applied on the skin for anti aging. One can choose the best-suited option for oneself out of so many options available.
night creams are made for the repair of the skin from the damage which skin suffers from in the daytime. A good night cream is must for everybody as our skin gets damaged in the day from air, pollution, dirt, sun and dust. Night cream repairs the skin to tackle with the daytime damage. Usually they don't contain the sun protection factor, which is not requiring in the night though its must in the day use. Night creams contain collagen, elastin and other moisturizers to restore the energy skin loses in the day. But while choosing a night cream one should keep in mind their age and skin type as specific night creams are made for specific skin types and age.
skin surrounding eye area is the thinnest skin on face after lips. It doesn't have much support as the skin is light and has hardly any support. That's the reason wrinkles appear first around eyes on face when aging. So it requires a special care to protect the skin from early aging, dark circles and wrinkles. Eye creams are not based on skin type or age type. They are meant for all skin types and all age groups. They are mostly oil based as it spreads easily around the eye area. While going out in sun its useful to apply a good under eye gel or cream with sun protection factor to protect the eye area from harmful UV rays. They are extremely helpful in preventing dark circles around eyes.
hand creams contain more moister in them then other creams because hands lose more moister everyday and require it more then other parts of the body as they are constantly in use. They are the most in water, as one needs the wash hand more often for cleanliness and other purposes. Hands creams are made to provide them the moister they lose, they lightens the skin and reduces the dryness and roughness from the skin of the hands.
Hands require more care as they don't have much oil glands and they are the most in water, that's the reason in winters many people's skin from hands gets peeled. When hands are excessive dry the best way to moisturize them is wash hand with a mild soap in the night, wipe them and then apply a good hand cream on them with light massage then wear cotton gloves throughout the night. This way your hands will absorb the cream and will be extremely soft and supple in the morning. This practice can be done once in a week to keep the hands young and beautiful.
